Horse Riding Equipment
The expense of owning your own horse can be steep, but the importance of doing your research and purchasing quality riding equipment is not to be overlooked. Without collecting the correct measurements and fitting tack properly, you can actually harm your horse through riding – something no true horse lover would ever want.
Whether you’re on the hunt for a new show jumping bridle, dressage saddle or just a fresh bit, ensuring the quality of the product is vital – imagine showing your horse, only to discover your reins snap in the middle of a jump, due to subpar materials.
It is important to do customer research when purchasing, asking fellow riders and consulting online reviews of the individual pieces of horse riding equipment before buying. Companies with ample experience in the industry are the best to opt for, as this demonstrates their commitment to riding and the care of horses.
The main kit you need to purchase for your horse are as follows:
Halter and lead rope
Tack aside, there is a plethora of items that need to be bought for your horse, including grooming gear, blankets (for a variety of different climates), first aid kits and splint boots. It all depends on the kind of activities you wish to partake in with your horse.
